How does a Group Break Work?

Group Breaks can be a very exciting and cheap way to get Big Hits for the fraction of the cost of buying Boxes/Cases. Basically, all cards from a Box(es)/Case are divided between all paying participants in the break. We typically offer 3 different types of Group Box/Case Breaks, which are Random Teams, Random Divisions, and Pick Your Team. Each type is explained below.

Random Teams (RT)

All spots for the Break are the same cost. Each spot you purchase, gives you 1 Random Team for the break. Sometimes teams are combined with each other if certain teams have a lower number of Hits in the product. For the most part though, it is 1 Random Team per spot. If teams are combined, we will specify that on the Product Listing. Once all spots are filled, we break the item live on our You Tube and Breakers.tv channels. At that time, we load all the participants and teams and randomize them using Random.org. Once all participants and teams are matched up, we do the break.

Random Divisions (RD)

This is similar to the Random Teams break, but using Division Instead. Baseball products, for example, will have 6 Random Spots, 1 for each division (NL Central, NL East, NL West, AL Central, AL East, AL West).

Pick Your Team (PYT)

This allows the customer to purchase their desired team at a specific price. The price of each team will vary depending on the number of hits per team, and/or the overall team popularity. This is a great way for team collectors to get all the cards for 1 team in a specific product.

What is the Difference Between Rip It and Ship It?


When choosing this option, you are asking At the Ballpark Cards to open your box(ex) live via YouTube and Breakers.TV. Benefits of this include:

Instant Gratification. If you don't want to wait an see what you got, we will open it for you, a lot sooner than if you waited for the mail to arrive.
All VALUABLE Hits are safely secured for shipping by placing them in Sleeves and TopLoaders at no additional cost to the purchaser. Basically, you are getting free supplies!
You have the option to only have certain items shipped from the Box(es). For example you may only want all the cards from a specific team, or only the Non-Base Hits! You can really customize it to your preferences. Depending on the amount of cards you don't want, we may be able to provide you with a coupon code for a discount off your next purchase.

Just as it sounds, all box(es) will be shipped in their Factory Sealed condition for you to enjoy opening yourself.
